He looks like a slob more or less but is actually in pretty damm good shape. I know guys who are 265+lbs (with beer bellies if that's what you wanna call it) who can pound out 2 miles in 15-20 minutes whereas someone who ISN'T in shape can't run a mile.

Just saying
Idk man, physical form is a pretty good indicator. To a degree. Someone's who's a little pudgy might actually be a powerhouse. Someone who has to reel their gut in over their belt...will not be.

You don't get to be that fat without eating like crap. Eating like crap affects your athleticism greatly. Having excess weight hampers your athleticism. I guess its POSSIBLE that someone that big is actually a dynamo -- vaguely possible -- but it's anomalous. As such, I'd it's pretty safe to make assumptions about his physical condition in such an extreme case.

Highly opinionated but out of touch with the current MMA scene.
